It appears that some Starfleet crew has disobeyed the Prime Directive and exerted their influence over another planet. NASA shared some photos of dunes on Mars, and they bear a remarkable resemblance to Star Trek’s Delta Shield. The V-shaped piles of sand were photographed by NASA’s Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter at the end of December, and I don’t think they could look more like Starfleet’s insignia unless someone sculpted the dunes by hand. It’s about as perfect as nature gets.
